Library system improvements

The City of Menlo Park's library system consists of the main library and the Belle Haven branch. The City is planning for new library facilities at both its main and branch locations. The planning process began with input received during the Library’s Departmental review in 2015, continued with its Strategic Plan in 2016, and moved forward in 2017 with the Space Needs Assessment for the main library and the Belle Haven Neighborhood Library Needs Assessment.

Public meetings


The next meeting of the Belle Haven Library Neighborhood Advisory Committee is scheduled for Wednesday, July 16, from 7 - 8:30 PM at the Belle Haven branch library.

A staff presentation on the Main Library siting and uses is scheduled for a City Council meeting in August, 2018. The final report on the Belle Haven Neighborhood Library Needs Assessment is also scheduled to be presented at that time.

Design Labs and drop-in activities centered on the Belle Haven Library Needs Assessment took place on April 5,6, and 7, 2018.

Three public meetings on the Main Library siting and uses were held on December 4, 2017, January 17, 2018, and February 15, 2018.
